Cape Region Awards R30 000 to Two Deserving Local Organisations
each Chas Everitt office having chosen a local organisation to support, it was
decided by the Chas Everitt Cape Region to ask the various organisations to
submit a brief application for a grant of R30 000 from the Cape Region of Chas
The response to the R30 000 grant application was very positive according to
Andre de Villiers, Chas Everitt's National Marketing Manager. "There is
so much need amongst welfare organisations at this time, as money has clearly
been tight during the tough economic times we have all endured, it is clear
that organisations have been really battling to make ends meet as donations
have declined during this period.
Chas Everitt Western Cape is pleased that our contribution will go some way
for two organisations that were selected to share the R30 000. The R30 000 Regional
grants (one per Region) is only one aspect of the Chas Cares programme in the
Region where local Chas Everitt offices have all chosen a local welfare organisation
in their respective areas to support.
The successful applicants each receiving R15 000 are SARDA (South African Riding
for the Disabled Association) and Horison House Centre (for the care of intellectually
disabled adult people).
The two R15 000 cheques will be presented to representatives of the organisations
at Chas Everitt's 30th Anniversary celebrations that will be held in July.
